This is my take on the perfect lazy Sunday breakfast. I love kedgeree, but wanted something that you can prepare in advance, and which will double for the lunch box on Monday. This is my answer. Kedgeree Frittata.

You will need

  • 300 gr smoked mackerel (I used a peppered version)
  • bag young spinach
  • Microwavable curried rice
  • 11 eggs
  • Half cup sultanas
  • Handful coriander
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Tbs olive oil
  • Large onion or cup chopped prepared onion

In order to make the frittata, you will need a large, deep, frying pan.

  1. Boil 3 of the eggs until they are hard,  6 minutes at least, remove from heat, cool, remove shells carefully and chop up he eggs. Reserve.
  2. Heat the grill to hot.
  3. Debone and remove skin from fish, flake. Put to one side.
  4. Microwave the rice.
  5. Beat the remaining 8 eggs.
  6. Chop and fry the onion for 5 minutes.
  7. Wash the spinach, dry and remove any thick stalks.
  8. Wash and chop coriander.
  9. Add spinach and coriander to the onion. Fry until spinach is wilted.
  10. Rice, fish and chopped eggs, season, then add the remaining eggs and continue to fry until base has set. Add a splash of milk if it looks too dry (this will depend on egg size).
  11. Remove and finish off under the grill for five minutes.
  12. Serve hot, sliced and with a green salad if desired, or cold the next day.
